Jane's Gold Watch

Organized by: Friends of Jane Alderman

Friends of Jane's Photo

THE STORY:

As Chicago actors, directors, agents and casting directors, we have all been supported by others in our professional community at critical moments in our lives and careers. None of us gets by entirely on our own. Over the last 30+ years, many of us have benefited enormously from the support of Jane Alderman in her roles as casting director, teacher and friend. We would like your help in celebrating and commemorating the retirement of an incredible woman whose work changed the landscape of the casting business in Chicago. As Jane moves into the next chapter of her life, we would like to create a fund (an honorarium) that will serve as Jane's "Gold Watch,' commemorating her years as a leader in our industry. Let's "Pay It Backwards" and come together as a community to say "Thank You" to Jane!
